The R-122V is the pinnacle of our R-Series line, a world class tube  ribbon microphone exhibiting unparalleled richness, depth and detail,  particularly in the midrange frequencies. With a lushness that has to be  heard to be truly appreciated, the R-122V offers the ultimate in ribbon  microphone performance for those who insist on the very best.

The R-122V takes the Royer-pioneered concept of active ribbon  microphone technology to an unprecedented level by incorporating vacuum  tube electronics into the same proven transducer system used in the  venerable R-121 and R-122 ribbon microphones. The high operating voltage  of the vacuum tube provides headroom far beyond that available from a  standard phantom power supply. Sonically this translates into unmatched  clarity, detail and airiness, along with the ability to handle brute SPL  levels without flinching.

The Electronics
The R-122V’s head amplifier consists of a low-noise, triode-connected  military grade 5840 vacuum tube. Designed for a wide range of  applications, the R-122V offers superb transient response and the drive  capabilities only a vacuum tube head amplifier can provide. The circuit  is devoid of typical vacuum tube coloration.

The R-122V’s triode-configured cathode follower circuitry enables the  microphone to drive long cable runs without sonic degradation or  high-frequency loss. This capability is further enhanced by the R-122V’s  dedicated power supply, which provides ample current to the vacuum tube  electronics. Induced noise is virtually eliminated by the microphone’s  fully balanced output, which is electrically isolated with a special  purpose Jensen output transformer.

Like our phantom powered R-122, the R-122V has far more level than  non-powered ribbon microphones and its impedance matching circuitry  places a perfect load on the ribbon element at all times. This allows  the use of a wide variety of mic preamps without concern for gain and  impedance matches, two critical issues with ribbon microphones. All of  the R122V’s increased output comes from its large, specially designed  toroidal transformer, so there is no additional noise associated with  the microphone’s higher output.

Patented Offset Ribbon Technology
The R-122’s proprietary offset ribbon transducer (Patent Number:  6,434,252) positions the ribbon element closer to the front (logo) side  of the microphone than the rear. This arrangement gives the ribbon more  room to move within the prime magnetic field while maintaining full  frequency response during high SPL recordings. It’s an integral piece of  the magic of all Royer R-series microphones.
